Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall grade, it actually received an impressive nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B+ in this area. When determining our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a respectable grade in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is typically used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second least favorable category is long-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 95.29412 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Turning our final category of inspections, this facility received an F here. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility also received 10 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
